Introduction to Entity Choice for Creative Businesses
May 20, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
If you’re like most people, you may be confused by the different types of business entities that exist. How do you know which is right for you? In this two-hour, live online workshop, we’ll introduce the four most common types of business entities for creative enterprises:
- Sole Proprietorships
- Limited Liability Companies
And we’ll explain the relative advantages, disadvantages, costs, formalities, and general tax consequences of each.
